In the group league, Nepal defeated India by 3-1. However, in the final, India took full control of proceedings right from the start. India looked for gaps in Nepal’s defence, and in the 18th minute, they managed to take the lead through Boby, who scored the first goal of the match. After 12 minutes, Guite’s assisted Korou Singh, who added another goal for India.

After the second goal, Nepal began to attack the Indian half with much extremity, but the Indian midfield was successful in thwarting their efforts. In the 39th minute, Nepal captain Prashant Laksam with frustration elbowed Danny Laishram- an action where a red card was awarded by the referee.

Guite, who had earlier provided two assists, netted a brilliant goal in the 63rd minute. India’s second-half substitute Aman added the fourth goal in injury time.
